Why I Haven't Wanted to Review Rudolph's Book "Introduction to Messianic Judaism"
All the Exclusionist blogs are talking about this book. Even Inclusionist groups such as Torah Resource have reviewed it. So why not me?
Well, it's a little personal.
He, Rudolph, refuses to acknowledge that his predecessor, a former president of the UMJC, wrongly prevented my wedding from taking place. He actually found out what city we were in, found out who was going to perform the ceremony, found out his phone number, and proceeded to sabotage it.
So I can't review his book because I'm clearly biased against him. I couldn't hope to give a proper review of that book. It may even have some good points in it, who knows? I haven't read it. Don't plan on reading it. Perhaps some others will review it more in depth for me.
And to Rudolph I can only say: repudiate the evil that was done to me and my family. Even if it harms your job, you need to repudiate it.
I'm a good man. A hard-worker (which everyone I work with can tell you). Honest. I love Yeshua with all of my heart (which both my Believing and even Atheist friends can tell you). The fire of Torah burns in my heart all the time and even wakes me up nights. I'm a child of G-d. And I didn't deserve what was done to me.
